We went there twice (hope that counts for something!) For lunch and dinner. Good food, affordable, friendly personal service from owner. We could not get enough of Hercule's Goat Stew. And the fish (snapper) was very fresh, very well prepared. Unfortunately I forgot to take the picture before I ravished my plate. And in true island style there was a... More

He was a little shot handed so it took a bit to get our food but it was well worth the wait. I had a Haitian pork dish that was a house special that was phenomenal--- I was... More

Hercules is a wonderful host and the food is outstanding.The creole appetizer assortment isn't to be missed, stuffed crab, christophine (chayote squash), salt fish fritters and boudain, with loads of fresh tomatoes and salad around it. The Griot (similar to cuban mariscos - pork that is briefly boiled to remove fat, then seared), creole shrimp, mahi-mahi and stewed goat were... More

We found this place and were at first the only guests. Creole sampler appetizer delicious for sharing. Goat curry maybe best taste on the island. Enjoy this gem!

We ordered the goat and it was cold in the middle, we complained and the second dish ( chicken) was also cold in the middle. The owner was very apologetic and said" my wife is heating it up in the microwave ". The Rum punch was the only good thing about our meal.!!!!!

We went here for breakfast every morning while we were staying in Anse Marcel. We did eat dinner here too one night and were not disappointed. The service is quick and the owner is nice to talk too. The prices are very reasonable.
